Counselling Groups


Transit is a counselling group for you who are 15-25 and have thoughts about your gender identity and/or your gender expression and want to talk about things that have to do with gender and trans together with others with similar experiences.

Regardless of if you’ve just started thinking about it or if you’ve been thinking about it your whole life, this is a place where you can talk about what you need to talk about.

Maybe you don’t feel like neither a boy nor a girl, both or neither of them, maybe it varies. Maybe you want to change your body so that it feels more like your body, or you may have other experiences and thoughts. We talk about this and much more during Transit. What you feel is important, we feel is important.

The group is lead by counselors who have experience of being trans. We work based on a method material that has been produced by RFSL Stockholm in order to talk about gender identity and trans in a group setting. We talk about different themes at every session and do exercises based on the themes as well as talking.

Going to Transit is free and it is a group of 6-14 participants. The group meet up nine times. The group is held in Swedish.

Registration is required to join the group, as each group has a limited number of places. If you want to join the next Transit group, register in the form found here: We will get back to you when we have the date for next Transit start up, hopefully in Autumn 2019.

Location: Central Göteborg.

Suggestions for themes for counselling groups and group activities 

RFSL Göteborg plans to arrange some kind of counselling group or group activity every year from now on. Now we turn to you as members to find out what focus you would be interested in for coming semesters. The focus or theme for a group can be the coming out process, trans, migration as an LGBTQ individual. Focus should be within LGBTQ. A group activity can for example be a meeting space for rainbow families, trans separatistic member evenings or the like.

If you’re interested in a certain focus of a counselling group or group activity, fill out this form. If the theme you wish for is chosen we will get back to you with an invitation.

If you have any questions you can email the counselor Linda Gustafsson at

Thank you!
